Re: author window requires horizontal and vertical scrolling

Sorry, I meant to say that just horizontal scrolling is the problem. I like being able to scroll through a document vertically :D

author window requires horizontal and vertical scrolling

Hi, just installed 14.2, and my editing window requires me to scroll horizontally. Also in text mode, nothing is flush left -- it sort of floats around the middle of the page. It's not happening with all my files. Just the one I'm working on :( What do I do to disable that? Is it something like word...

Re: Read-only content?

thanks sorin. I didn't think the running of count words would affect a transformation, but I was wondering why that one file has four words, just four characters, of "read only" content, where all my other files have none. It's DocBook 5, so maybe it's an Xinclude reference. Oh well, I'm sure I'll f...

Re: Read-only content?

Hi Sorin, it's a single DocBook file. I'm interested in getting a word count. I have similar files and they just give me a simple word count. But one file gives me two word counts: regular content and read-only content. I wasn't aware that I had *any* read-only content. And since it's just 4 words a...

Read-only content?

When I count words on one of my documents (DocBook5) in Author, I get "regular content" count, and then a "read-only content:" which is 4 words and 4 spaces.

I'm on a Mac. I changed permissions on the file so that everything was "read + write."

Any ideas why I'm getting this?

thanks!

Hi, I'm getting the same problem: when I try to paste HTML into Author I get "resetting to invalid mark."

Have there been any developments since these posts a year ago?

Re: "missing cover" when creating Kindle file from epub

Hi, Jason Zech just figured it out:

In the <meta name="cover". you need to remove the namespace that Oxygen puts in there. For some reason that breaks the conversion. Go into your OPF and change your meta tag to:

<meta name="cover" content="cover-image"/>

Hi, does anything jump out at you in the comparison of those two files? Using the compare feature I could see that there were some differences, but I couldn't tell which ones were significant.

Also, any suggestions on consultants who could help me manage Oxygen Author?

Still making the transition from 13.2 to 14.1... The ePubs I'm generating in 14.1, using the ANT transformation, aren't picking up the customizations that I have in the XSL file. It's picking up the .css file, but the customizations that are showing up in 13.2 aren't showing up in the 14.1 version. ...

Re: filename contains spaces

thanks. That's really helpful.

I always store all the images in a "figs" folder inside the folder that contains the .xml file. I was told that's the best practice. And that sounds like it will work in the next build.

Thanks again, appreciate the quick response!
